Working on the Strategic Product team, you will be thinking about how to improve the product for all users, both the end-users using mobile app but also our energy partners and internal users. You might be working on stability problems to help us serve a growing customer base, or you may be implementing new product features such as matching end-users charging to renewable generation. The role will be varied and driven by a customer-focused product development process.

The product is both a customer facing mobile application but also a platform which Energy Utilities and Grid Operators can use to manage EV charging on their network.

As a Data Engineer, you will need to be comfortable with the technical side of managing a complex data pipeline, but also be thinking about how to present this to users in a way in which drives business value. You should be familiar with PSQL and Python but also be familiar with BI Tools, Data Visualisation Techniques and tools like AirFlow. You should be interested to get deep into the technicalities of our data but also always keep the use-case in mind and ensure the outputs are helpful and understandable.

As an Engineer you should be able to work with your teammates across engineering and other disciplines to plan and implement the technical side of features. You should be driven to keep learning and developing your skills and have a strong understanding of where you need to develop your skills. enables consumers to charge their EVs in the most cost-effective and least carbon-intense way possible, whilst saving them money!
